5 Hacks To Easily Communicate As An Introvert

Hacks To Easily Communicate As An Introvert

As an introvert, I can attest to the fact that communication can be a bit tricky for people like us. It’s not that introverts hate people or dislike talking to them, it’s just that communicating with others can be a bit daunting and scary. Whenever the time comes for me to communicate as an introvert, I rehearse quite a bit about what I am going to say, no joke!

The thing is, introverts don’t really feel that comfortable in extremely social events, unlike extroverts. Introverts don’t like engaging in small talk or superficial conversations, they prefer deep, and meaningful things to speak about. That’s why it’s difficult socializing with others, which is often misconstrued as arrogant, snobbish, and unsocial.

What makes an extrovert feel at ease, makes an introvert feel trapped and intimidated. What makes an introvert happy, might come across as boring to an extrovert. It can be really hard for introverts to open up and speak freely with others, and that’s why these hacks can help you communicate as an introvert without feeling scared or drained.

So, how to communicate as an introvert? And that too easily and without any fear and anxiety? Let’s find out!

5 Easy Ways To Communicate As An Introvert

1. Sit down if things feel too overwhelming.

It can be really hard and overwhelming to be a part of a fast-paced social gathering, where everyone is interacting with everyone and just keep on walking around the whole room. If you feel exhausted doing this over and over again, then simply sit down.

Sitting down can help you feel more grounded and will give you the opportunity to calm down. Constantly interacting with people, especially strangers, can take a lot out of you and make you feel drained and exhausted. In situations like this, simply sitting down for a few minutes can help you gather your thoughts and calm your nerves.

Just because you are attending a social event or gathering, that doesn’t mean you have to keep on talking to others non-stop. It’s okay if you need a break whenever you struggle to communicate as an introvert.

2. Be the one to initiate conversations with everyone around you.

This might sound contradictory and scary, but hear me out. Introverts don’t like small talk, and getting trapped in a conversation like that must be one of your worst nightmares. Talking about the weather or how much someone’s watch costs, makes you feel like pulling all your hair out.

That’s why, maybe it’s a good idea to initiate conversations that you feel comfortable engaging in, and most importantly, conversations that make you feel stimulated and happy. Ask interesting questions and bring up topics that will not just interest you but will also engage others.

3. Don’t force yourself to speak with others if you don’t feel like it.

Always remember one thing: It’s okay if you don’t feel like talking to anyone or participating in a conversation. It’s okay to take a breather once in a while and not speak with anyone. Even if you are not in any social gathering, and it’s just speaking on the phone with your family and friends, you can still do it on your own terms.

Maybe you can set a specific time when you choose to speak to someone. OR maybe if you want to have a relaxed and heart-to-heart conversation with someone, you can wait till you are in the right headspace and then embark on one.

Just like sometimes it’s important to think about what other people expect from you, it’s equally important to prioritize your own feelings and mental peace.

4. Be confident about yourself.

This is one of the most important things you need to cultivate if you want to communicate as an introvert. Being self-conscious and doubting yourself every step of the way will only make you feel more intimidated and submissive.

Whatever you have to say or whatever opinion you possess, try to express it in a very confident manner so that people don’t see your anxiety underneath it all. Even if you feel scared, put on your confident face and say what you have to say. Your confidence can help you so much when you’re dealing with introvert communication problems.

5. Prioritize alone time whenever you need it.

If you have trouble communicating as an introvert, then maybe you need some plain and simple alone time to recharge and rejuvenate. Most of the time, you may not realize that you need some solitude because you are busy with a hundred other things and obligations in your life.

But if you feel irritated, short-tempered, mentally and emotionally drained, and overwhelmed, then you need to be by yourself for some time. So instead of forcing yourself to hang out with others, just so they don’t feel upset with you, take out some time for yourself instead. And then come back when you feel more relaxed and recharged.
